    Default What did u do different in the cycle you conceived?

    Just wondering, for those of you who have tried to fall pregnant for more than 3 cycles with your first child, what did you do different the cycle you conceived? Particularly interested in stories where BC wouldn't be the cause, ie if you weren't on BC before or have been off BC for a long time as knowingly it can take 3 cycles to get out of your system.

    I stopped being obsessive. i.e I didn't do opks or my monitor. I just watched for changes in cm and bang! It happened. Also I think me taking evening primrose oil and progestalift supplements helped.

    Before I conceived my boys, I went and had acupuncture. We had been trying for 12 months, so I thought I would give it a go and see what happened. I told her it was for fertility but also stress relief and I actually just thought if anything I would walk out maybe feeling a little bit happier.

    Next cycle -twins.

    I've never been on hormonal bc. Ds took 8 cycles to conceive. 3 cycles before I started taking B vitamins. I don't think anything else was really different though it was just after easter and daylight savings ending. Sometimes I wonder if binging on heaps of chocolate the month before helped!

    I had kind of resigned myself to the fact I wouldn't get pregnant but told myself at the start of the cycle that "I would get a bfp in 4 weeks". And I did. haha

    We used pre-seed and generally just relaxed a bit around O time as we were on holidays 😊

    It took us years to conceive dd. I can't tell you exact number of cycles because I intentionally stopped counting as it was too painful. The cycle we fell was the one time I was certain it wouldn't happen. We only dtd twice, once a couple of days before O and once a couple if days post.

    I used the clearblue ovulation tracker with the smiley face. It showed that I was ovulating on CD 9 and I had been missing the egg by BDing closer to CD 14. I also started taking b vitamins and iron supplements. First month of using these things we were pregnant!

    Nothing really, we finally conceived with our sticky DD after 13 months so BC pill was well and truly out of my system. The only thing that was different was that we had decided to stop trying for a bit and had a little holiday so I was much more relaxed (total cliche I know!). Honestly, 3 months is nothing in the scheme of things (although I know it feels like a lifetime!). There isn't ever going to be one size fits all when it comes to things that suddenly help us get pregnant. We had all the tests and everything was in perfect working order. We just got lucky finally.

    ETA - we used OPKS, temping, preseed, BD every other day, legs up for 20mins after sex etc etc etc but none of it made any difference over the 13 months until eventually it happened.
